Neutering

We routinely perform surgical and chemical neutering including laparoscopic bitch speys. Female dogs can be neutered before their first season from 6 months of age or alternatively 3 months after a season. Early neutering of female dogs reduces the risk of mammary tumours and removes the risk of developing pyometra later in life.

For routine surgical castration we recommend waiting for your dog to be fully grown and matured so we generally wait until your dog is at least a year old to prevent growth plate and behavioural problems.

Chemical neutering for male dogs involves implanting a small chip into the scruff of the neck. From 6 weeks following the implant your dog will effectively be chemically castrated for either 6 or 12 month depending on the chip used.

We neuter cats from 5 months old. Cat castration is a very quick procedure that requires no stitches. Female cats are generally spayed through a small incision in their left flank.

Dental Care

Dental Care

Dental health is often an overlooked issue in dog and cats. It is estimated that 85% of dogs and cats over the age of three years of age will have some degree of dental disease. Here at The Guildford Vet, we believe helping owners understand the impact dental health can have on your pet’s overall health is important. We can where necessary perform dental scale and polish procedures in house, and carry out any necessary tooth extractions to help restore your pet’s dental health.

Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy

Here at The Guildford Vet we pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards of treatment and care to every pet we see. Veterinary medicine is advancing all the time, and while we stay abreast of all the latest innovations, we also know that sometimes the old ways are the best! So you can be assured that we only ever introduce new techniques when we know that they deliver significantly better care for your pet. Laparoscopic (better known as ‘keyhole’) surgery is one such example.
